Crude Oil Futures

Crude oil futures in the October contract are trading higher by 50 cents this Friday afternoon in New York after settling last Friday at 49.11 while currently trading at 47.85 down about $1.50 for the trading week still hovering right near a 7 high. Oil prices are trading above their 20 and 100-day moving average telling you that the short-term trend is higher as I’m currently sitting on the sidelines in this commodity as the chart structure is very poor at present as I’m waiting for the monetary risk to be lowered so I will be patient. The market today reacted off the Federal Reserve’s announcement that they probably will not raise interest rates sending many commodities higher while also sending the U.S dollar slightly lower today as it certainly looks to me that interest rates are going to be low for a long period of time. However, oversupply issues of crude oil is what is hampering this market at the current time. [Read more...]

A Zombie Financial System, Black Swans and A Gold Share Correction

Bob Moriarty of 321Gold says that since the crash of 2008, the financial system has become a zombie, and he urges investors to pay attention to when they take some money off the table.

Black Swans

The world's financial system died in mid-September of 2008. Since then it has become something out of Night of the Living Dead, in other words, a zombie. Central banks around the world came up with an interesting new concept that you could somehow borrow and spend your way to prosperity. Great concept but it seems to have failed utterly.

We have a zombie financial system now and the world owes more than at any point in history. Most governments are functionally bankrupt yet they want to borrow and spend more in the hopes that if it didn't work before, maybe it will somehow work if they do more of it. Our grandchildren and their children are going to be paying for this monumental stupidity. [Read more...]

The 5 Fatal Flaws of Trading

By: Elliott Wave International

Close to ninety percent of all traders lose money. The remaining ten percent somehow manage to either break even or even turn a profit -- and more importantly, do it consistently. How do they do that?

That's an age-old question. While there is no magic formula, Elliott Wave International's own Jeffrey Kennedy has identified five fundamental flaws that, in his opinion, stop most traders from being consistently successful. We don't claim to have found The Holy Grail of trading here, but sometimes a single idea can change a person's life. Maybe you'll find one in Jeffrey's take on trading. We sincerely hope so.

The following is an excerpt form Jeffrey Kennedy's Trader's Classroom Collection eBook. [Read more...]

Mexican Peso Futures

The Mexican Peso in the September contract settled last Friday at 5462 while currently trading at 5460 basically unchanged for the trading week while trading lower for the 2nd consecutive day down about 50 points this Friday afternoon as I am looking at entering into a bullish position come Monday’s trade. The 10 day low at the present time stands at 5305 which is risking around $900 per contract plus slippage and commission but come Monday’s trade that will be raised to 5358 risking less than $500 per contract plus slippage and commission as I will be patient and look for an entry point come Monday morning. The Peso is trading above its 20 and 100-day moving average telling you that the short-term trend is higher as I think this recent pullback in price is due to the tremendous rally we’ve had in the month of August as I still think the bullish trend is still intact.

Putting Gold Miners Into Proper Perspective

Precious metals expert Michael Ballanger reviews a number of the key elements that have characterized 2016's advance in gold, silver and the associated mining, development and exploration stocks.

GDXJ Chart

With the summer of 2016 passing by at an alarming pace, I think it is important to take a few moments away from the enchanting beauty of Georgian Bay and review a number of the key elements that have characterized 2016's breathtaking advance in gold, silver and the associated mining, development and exploration stocks. While gold bullion is ahead 26.6% year-to-date, the gold mining stocks have demonstrated their incredible contained leverage and why, when the market operates properly, they are vastly more rewarding than the physical metals themselves. However, the 2016 advance has had many analysts questioning the integrity of this latest move as the HUI (NYSE Arca Gold BUGS Index) and the XAU (Philadelphia Gold and Silver Index) have defied gravity, the laws of physics, the Law of Diminishing Returns, and just about every other law that historically pertains to the behavior of stocks.
